What is it like working as a Private Equity Investment Associate?

"Unprecedented Exposure, Learning Opportunity, Culture."
Pros: I'm honored to have the opportunities to meet with partners from other private equity firms on a daily basis and evaluate hundreds of private companies. The partners at my firm are very kind and encouraging, and ask me to take on a lot responsibilities as a junior person. This is a fantastic learning opportunity at a 28-person firm, and it has an entrepreneurial feeling here.
